  1. Thank you very much! We hadn't agreed on a payment day but I shall be ringing up on Saturday to make the first payment so I will email them this information today.
  2. I have just rang the bailiff who was at the house earlier, we have come to an agreement of weekly payments. As I will now be making payments can they still take the car?
  3. Many thanks for the quick reply. The car is not on finance, it was a wedding gift from a relative. I think it is worth around £2500. The benefits we receive are council tax/housing benefit, child and working tax credits. No one is ill (apart from a stress related bowel condition) or disabled. I do know how much the liability order is for but I am unsure when it was passed on to the bailiffs.
  4. Hello... I am having a few problems with my local council and CCS bailiffs. I owe council tax, just over a grand. 3 months ago I rang the council to try to sort it out with a payment program; I was told I need to fill out an income form. I never received this form. 3 weeks ago I get a knock at the door from CCS bailiffs. I was a bit confused why as I was waiting on a form so I told a lie and said I wasn't the person they were after. After which I got in touch with the council to ask why the bailiffs were at my door when I was waiting on the form. As I hadn’t chased up the form they had sent it to the bailiffs! The council were unwilling to make any arrangements or call off the bailiffs as I am not on job seekers or income support even though I am out of work as I am a full time mum. My husband only works part time. I decided to set up a standing order to pay off x amount each week, so the council are being paid. Today the bailiffs came back so I told them to take a hike as I am paying the council direct. They have taken down my husband’s car details to see if they can levy on it. The car is in my husband’s name but registered to this address. He uses the car for work as a delivery driver. Can they levy on the car as the bailiff said he will clamp and tow it away which will leave my husband unable to work? I should say the debt is wholly in my name... I have just spoken with the council who declined to call off the bailiff, I was also told any money I pay to the council direct will be sent to the bailiff so they can take the fees and then after the fees are paid off the council will then be paid. The fees are £350 over what I owe on the council tax, I am sure 1st and 2nd visit fees are not £350! The council will now no longer talk to me about this matter and I have to speak with the bailiff direct. I was under the impression I am classed as vulnerable due to not working, on a very low income and have 2 children under the age of 5. I’m sorry this might be jumbled about and all over the place; I am still shaking from the bailiff’s visit. Any advise regarding this matter would be highly appreciated. Many thanks in advance.
  5. Hello, I have a bit of a situation going on that i really do need help with. About a year ago a lady brought her kids to a sports club that I am a member of. We became friends until she tried to get me to take sides in a petty argument she was having with another member of the club. Since then there has been many times she has tried to cause trouble for me. She has tried to break up a close knit of friends on a couple of occasions, luckily we can all see what she is trying to do and we are all still very close. Then came the personal attacks, she made an allegation of me bullying one of her children at the club, this went through the proper complaints procedures through the committee, I was found to be not guilty. She then accused me of swearing at her 8 year old child again at the club. This also went through the proper procedures and again I was found to be not guilty. Then came the bombshell. A few days ago I was told by my club coach that she had been in touch with the police regarding harassment. The police contacted my coach as she had given them his details. My coach told the police she was wasting their time and she is a bit of a fantasist, due to the previous complaints which were not true. Luckily the police have decided to drop the case (I was not contacted at all by the police) She has now been told not to come back to the club, but she has taken her kids to another one in the next town across so I will still have contact with her a few times a year at tournaments/gradings etc… I am a member of the clubs committee and I am afraid all of the false allegations will have a negative effect against my name and might be voted out at the next AGM. I am at my wits end now, how can I get her to stop making false allegations, spreading rumours against me and generally making my life hell. Many thanks for reading, and thank you in advance for any advise you maybe able to give me.
  6. I should have mentioned about the dispute. After waiting over 9 days for a reply to an email I had sent them regarding the fault, I did open a dispute with ebay/paypal which is still open and I won’t close it until I receive the new drums (which should be in a week or so). I rang them as I hadn’t received a reply to my email and that is when I remembered about the game. I have been told I will not be getting the game, is there much point in carrying on the dispute???
  7. Hello I recently purchased some Xbox 360 Rock band drums from Zavvi stores via eBay. The auction page stated that the drums came with a Rock Band 2 game. I received the drums nearly 2 weeks after I paid and they have become faulty within a couple of week of having them. While I was on the phone with Zavvi sorting out returns arrangements I remembered I had not received the Rock Band 2 game as stated on the auction page. When I queried this I was told they do not have sufficient stock to send out the game and basically it was a mistake on the auction page. I asked if I would be refunded some of the money I had paid as I would not be getting the game and I was offered 10% off my next purchase with Zavvi. I found this to be unacceptable as I do not use eBay very often. Where do I stand with not receiving and never will receive the game, even though it was stated on the auction page??
  8. Many thanks for taking the time to look in to this for me. It doesn't mention anything about reciepts unfortunatly. A friend of mine advised me to ring consumer direct which I have just done. The lady I spoke to said by law the company does not have to replace as I cannot prove I bought the jacket from the store. I feel a bit annoyed as the jacket has only lasted less then 6 months, but as there is nothing I can do about it im just going to throw it in the bin.
  9. The stitching has come away on the back, around 3 inches has come apart.
  10. I took the jacket back but as i had no reciept the sales assistant said there was nothing she could do. I tried to explain all i wanted was an exchange not a refund but she was having non of it and was handed head office's phone number. I got in touch with head office and was told exactly the same thing, even my husband tried but still the same answer. So now i am stuck. What do you think my next move should be?? I will be fighting this as far as I can.
  11. Many thanks Royalscot. I am unsure how I can prove that I bought the jacket from sports world, It is a LA Gear jacket. I think I will pop down later today and see what come out of it.
  12. Hello I bought a jacket from sports world max 6 months ago. I do not wear it every day and it is in very good condition. Yesterday i noticed the stitching on the back is coming apart quite a bit leaving the jacket unable to wear, it has not been ripped. Now my problem is, I do not have the recipt anymore. I am not after a refund just an exchange. I have read about sports world being a bit of a pain when it comes to refunds/exchanges so would like to have the info before I head down to the shop. Many thanks in advance
  13. Hello My Husband today received a letter from JB debt recovery. It say's Hillesden Securities vs. The Husband debt outstanding xxx My husband had no clue who Hillesden were so I did a quick search online, it came up with another DCA, this is what is confusing us both. How can 1 DCA be claiming money on behalf of another DCA??? Many thanks in advance
  14. Hey ya I pay weekly by debit card over the phone. On odd occasions i will pop in with a cash payment. I have paid 2 weeks off at the same time and the same the following week, we had no problems doing that.
